Erasmus Mundus International Master Scholarship in Management of IT (IMMIT)

Erasmus Mundus programme: International Master in Management of IT (IMMIT), is jointly offered by IAE Aix Graduate School of Management, Université Paul Cezanne Aix-Marseille III (France), Turku University (Finland) and Tilburg University (The Netherlands).

Information and information technology (IT) are increasingly an integral part of products and services as well as the foundation of business processes. Organisations must know how to make the right choices with respect to new IT systems and at the same time, ensure that existing business processes continue to receive a high quality service from IT. This tight link between IT and organizational processes means that the IT department is not alone in its responsibility for the effective use of information and IT. Getting more value from IT is an increasingly important organisational competency. The IMMIT is Master’s program designed to address these new Information & Management challenges.
